Camille Klein Memorial Scholarship

Camille Klein was a founding member of the Newcomer Friends of Greater Plano. She worked tirelessly to make certain that the club followed legal guidelines. She served as Ways & Means Chairperson and conceived the idea of the Basket Auction, which she chaired in both 2001 and 2002. Camille did many other things within the Club, but she is best remembered, not for what she did, but for who she was to those of us fortunate enough to have known her. Camille lost her battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in May of 2003. In her memory, the Camille Klein Founder’s Scholarship was established in 2003 to honor our great friend.

Camille contributed to society through her work as a nurse and she contributed to the local community through her efforts and vision. We intend for the Scholarship to be a fitting tribute to her memory and many contributions."
